About me and my therapy practice
I work from home in a bright private studio, 10 minutes' walk of both Hammersmith & Shepherds Bush stations. Bus services (295, 283, 220 & 72) stop at Brook Green, 3 minutes from the house. A bicycle docking station is close by at Little Brook Green. Metered street parking is also available between 8:30 & 18:30.
I was inspired to train and work as a counsellor/psychotherapist after my own experience of receiving counselling helped me at a key time in my life. Following an initial placement for several years at a busy local GP's practice in the late 1990s, I have worked privately for 16 years to help people from all walks of life deal with challenging emotional & behavioural issues, often stress-related.
I have a special interest in working with victims of adverse childhood experiences, trauma and PTSD. I have experience in helping business and professional people in demanding jobs who are facing life or career crises and transitions. I frequently work with clients who suffer from anxiety-related issues, depression & low self-acceptance. I draw on 20 years of experience in mediating disputes to help people facing conflict & relationship problems move forward positively.
I follow the latest international research & knowledge so I can provide well-informed, reliable & practicable guidance to clients, where appropriate. I recognise there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’, prioritising understanding each individual’s particular background, needs and objectives.
My approach is informal, flexible & collaborative. A relationship based on trust, commitment and mutual respect is key to effective counselling, so my priority in our first meeting is always to establish if we can work well together. I work without judgement on whatever is getting in my client’s way and assess how this can best be addressed.
